Retweet After Me: No More Flogging a Dead Horse

February 18, 2013 |

Enough already with horsemeat and the Pope. This weekend we thought it best to take a total break from horses, the Pope as even Twitter is running out of material in those “fields”. Well…. almost. We’ve included on eabout a meteor and another about food ingredients but apart from we’ve gone out of our way to follow the completely random approach.

You can follow us on Twitter @comedychords which is the account we’ll be using to follow our followers to choose our favourite tweets each and every weekend.

Without further ado, here are tweets that made us smile the most this week. Followers are on the up so we’ve found a lot more worthy of inclusion.

Here’s who made us laugh in 140 characters or less this weekend:

Retweet After Me – 04/02/13

February 4, 2013 |

In news this weekend we had nothing but Superbowl/Beyonce Tweets so we thought we’d “shake” things up by adding a few tweets about the sad news of the death of Andre Cassagnes, designer of the classic toy Etch A Sketch. We couldn’t help ourselves, sorry.

The Boy With Tape On His Face – If J.K Rowling Can Write Again There’s Hope For Me Yet

January 5, 2013 | 3

Sam Wills needs no introduction. His actions speak louder than words. Although he claims it was an accident, there’s no denying that Wills (aka ‘The Boy With Tape on His Face’) has rewritten the rules of silent comedy. He left behind going over and over his lines in favour of scavenging the aisles of his local hardware store in search of the perfect comedy prop. The Boy adeptly blends speechless stand-up (there is a mic on stage), perfectly suited soundtracks, puppetry and extreme audience participation to create a positively unconventional experience.

Joe Lycett – There’s Nothing Like Stand-Up

October 16, 2012 |

Joe Lycett has basically rocketed to success in next to no time. In 2009 he was crowned Chortle Student Comedian of the year, swiftly ensued by a runners-up position in the 2009 Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, and finalist in the revived BBC New Comedy Awards last year. Despite being a “newcomer” he has already amassed many a TV show appearance on the likes of 8 Out of 10 Cats, Epic Win and, most recently, Celebrity Juice and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. His debut stand-up show Some Lycett Hot was nominated for the Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards this year and he has a full diary of dates to take him right through to Christmas. We managed to pull him away from his tight schedule for a quick chat. Read More
